Build better customer relationships with a cloud-based contact centre

About Virtual Contact Centre

8x8 Virtual Contact Centre is a cloud-based solution that eliminates the need for on-premises equipment
and allows you to focus on what’s really important: your customers.

Constantly having to maintain, upgrade, troubleshoot and repair a contact centre system takes valuable time away from your core business. When customers need support and your out-dated technology gets in the way, you lose more than just revenue. You also miss opportunities to build long-term customer relationships. And you erode the value of your company’s most essential asset: customer loyalty.

What you Need

The 8x8 Contact Centre solutions deliver all the calling features you will need included in the price:

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Knowledgebase: turns every agent into an expert and ensures every customer receives accurate, consistent information via phone or email.
  • Agent/Supervisor Desktop: no software plug-ins or downloads required. Call agents and supervisors use the same desktop, but access different screens and functions based on their permissions.
  • Skills-based Routing and CTI: Skills-based routing matches callers with agents who can meet their needs. CTI (computer-telephony integration) delivers caller information to the agent’s screen along with the call so the call agent can provide more personalised service.
  • Supervisor and Inter-agent Communications: Web chat and notifications improve internal communications. Supervisors can send notifications to groups of call agents or chat with an agent without putting customers on hold. 
  • Interactive Voice Response (IVR): Enable customers to route themselves to the right agent or department using voice prompts. Managers can create their own basic IVR scripts or use 8x8’s optional eIVR (enhanced IVR) to offer more advanced self-service options.
  • Virtual Queuing and Web Callback: Instead of waiting on hold, customers can request a callback by leaving voicemail or completing a web form.
  • Outbound Dialling: Agents can place outbound calls to inform customers about the status of their order, purchase, or trouble ticket.
  • Chat Interaction: In addition to calling, customers can request support via chat, giving them multiple communication options.
  • Web-based Configuration Tool: Enables contact centre management without IT intervention. Authorised users can define hours of operation, create basic IVR scripts, and manage queues.
  • Wallboards: Quickly check the status of your queues to see whether you’re meeting service level agreements (SLAs). Move agents from one queue to another when necessary. Access the wallboard from your wall, desktop or iOS/Android smartphone or tablet.
  • API Support: Gain access to call information, customer data, and real-time reports. Our streaming API enables you to integrate CRM capabilities into your 8x8 Virtual Contact Centre.
  • Email Interaction: Allow customers to contact you via email and manage these interactions using 8x8’s CRM/ticket management system.
  • CRM Integrations: Use 8x8’s built-in CRM/ticket management system, or integrate your contact centre with a third-party CRM solution such as Zendesk, NetSuite, Salesforce, Zoho or Microsoft Dynamics.
  • Desktop Collaboration: Give agents another powerful support tool by allowing them to remotely control customer desktops.
  • Campaign Dialler: Efficiently manage sales and marketing campaigns. Track which customers have been contacted and the outcome of the interaction.
  • Call Recording: On-demand or random call recordings help in coaching agents. Easy recordings management and retrieval.
